I had a very special photo session this afternoon. Can you guess who?
Inventing craft projects, sibling sleepovers, acting out plays, swinging in the backyard, playing for two hours in the playhouse, decorating the Christmas tree together, taking bubble baths together, riding bikes, helping each other with homework, and my favorite- being respectful of one another.
Don’t worry Mom, Kenley’s mouth shut in time. I think.
Yep, when these two get along it melts my heart and I wonder at what point they will realize just how lucky they are. Do they know that when they grow up, they will rely on each other for advice (you really should tell her no), the truth (um, those boots should have been donated to Goodwill three years ago), and reassurance (she may be sick now, but you will get through this). Really, there is nothing more dear than sisters.
Except maybe a little girl and a brother.
As parents, we win some, we loose some. I had the following Customer Support Live Chat with a Picaboo representative last night:
Here are a few “outtakes” from our attempt at our-children-are-happy-well-adjusted-and-photogenic-photo-session.
He’s thinking, “ain’t nobody got time for that.”
And he’s back.
I woke up feeling crafty today… and I have a little Christmas project in mind for these photos (and a few more). Gonna run with it while the juices are flowing.
Google’s Picasa 3 has some new, cool editing options. I changed the photographs to black and white, then chose the ‘vignette’ option to make them appear older.
A whole lot to be thankful for.
